In what way did you find -sstderr untrustworthy?  Perhaps it is because the 
"memory in use" figure only counts memory that the RTS knows about, and 
doesn't include malloc()'d memory.  If it's anything else, I need to know 
about it.

By all means - submit tickets with specific suggestions, or better still 
send patches.
